Player Notes

Mar 8 Matos continues to be bothered by soreness in his right shin and will be sidelined for at least another 10 days. An MRI on the outfielder's leg was inconclusive, prompting the Orioles to order a bone scan. For now, the team has said Matos is nursing a stress reaction, but it is feared that there might be a fracture, which would prevent him from being ready for the start of the regular season.
Advice: Larry Bigbie could move over to center field and fill in for Matos. Other players that could see more time in Matos' absence are Marty Cordova, Jack Cust, Darnell McDonald and Tim Raines Jr.





Mar 8 Centerfielder Luis Matos will be out at least 10 days and will undergo a bone scan to determine if he has a stress fracture in his right shin. Matos had an MRI on his sore shin, which proved inconclusive—necessitating the bone scan. "We'll give [the injury] a chance to settle down," Orioles manager Lee Mazzilli told the Washington Post. "You don't want it turning into anything more than it is… It's not a major concern for us right now." If the bone scan does reveal a stress fracture, Matos could require a month of rest and would miss the season opener April 4.
Views: Spring has not been kind to The Freshmaker, who suffered a dislocated shoulder in spring of 2001 and broke a bone in his wrist in spring of 2002. Darnell McDonald and Tim Raines, Jr. are the in-house candidates to replace Matos.

I had Matos a little while last year when he was producing at his peak, but I think Bay is a solid OF sleeper to own. I don't think Matos should be owned (12 teams, 3 OF 23-25 player format), especially now.

Grab Bay, now.
